Games "Microsoft has sensationally abandoned its controversial plans to restrict the sharing of XBox One games, and has also removed daily online authentication requirements for its forthcoming console", reports The Guardian. They had no choice. Still a good move.

Now, the used game market.. I do however despise that GameStop is making money hand over fist just scanning barcodes and marking up product 2-3x that they "bought back" from the consumer. I never buy used games, I like my money to be recorded as another sale and by dollars to contribute towards the developer and publisher. Killing the used game industry is a good thing IMO, but there are many out there that depend on it in order to afford to game. I just make the choice myself to not participate in it any longer.

You are only equating Gamestop with second-hand games, completely disregarding all the other non-Gamestop stores and individuals who do person-to-person sales -- I simply cannot agree with you about the killing of the used-game market. If you do not like Gamestop then don't, there are plenty of alternatives.
